    It does look like it could be Ageratina, as mentioned above. Also could be a black-leaved Eupatorium ‘Chocolate’. Is the plant that you have new, or in a dry area? Eupatorium will grow to 3-4′ tall if given shade and a moist area.

    Check out species of snakeroot in the Ageratina genus (it was in Eupartorium genus) and see if you have a match. I’m guessing only, this might be white snakeroot (Ageratina altissima)? Best wishes! http://www.friendsofthewildflowergarden.org/pages/plants/whitesnakeroot.html
